  1. F Pace....gives me the answer, they can see ahead over the top of you. Alot of higher seated drivers drive too close, vans , lorries, coaches, Range Rover etc. If someone is tailgating me i slow down and let them overtake, thats all they want to do. Rather that than being hit in the rear.
  2. So car-net is the title, but went off about Sat Nav. My unit shows the car-net icon and appears to have been used by the previous owner. So does it mean i have to register ,pay VW or can it be accessed ? This is the screen i get when trying to find access....
  3. See my post above. Really easy to fit. Put the screw down bracket that holds the battery tight to the tray on before you put the battery cover on. Thats about the only fiddly/awkward bit. Throws a load of errors up but drive a short distance, turn ignition on off and all gone. As to coding to the car i will get that done when its in for service. Its virtually the same battery as the one in it before so it will be charged similarly up until then .
  4. Put this in my car a couple of weeks ago. Fits perfectly. Got it from Dorset Auto Spares....delivered free next day. My car Nov15 with 32300 miles Best bit is these batteries come with 5 year Guarantee😃
  5. Where does the £4000 come from ? Its only the bumper and a few bits?
  6. BOTB is fine but you chances of winning imho are far less than this raffle type scheme. I had done it for around 10years every week and once was runner up and got £200 credit.... The catch to winning is that there are always more than one winner (guessed correct co ordinates) and the prize is given to the person who got the co ordinates right and then their next nearest entry was closest than all the other players who got it right. They changed the cost per ticket to get people to buy more tickets and its quite a bit cheaper to enter. I have stopped doing it, but this post might tempt me back 🙄
  7. If i had a black car i would do mine a dark bronze colour
  8. VW Harlow, part of Jardine Group which i think is an Inchcape Co. They do not knock anything off. They have a price match policy which imho is [email protected] They say they will price match any car of the SAME spec within 100 miles. Like trying to find two bits of rocking horse poo the same. From also speaking to numerous other people they want to sell you finance and don’t like cash buyers...thats Most car dealers imho. You can make an offer but they know someone will be along not much mater and pay full asking price and on finance....
  9. Took me 3 hrs for 4 wheels, two coats on each. Quick drying stove paint. That included hacking up car on 4 corners wheel removal and replacement. Quick rub down with wire wool. Rears quicker than fronts due to fronts being tricky to get a brush into the concave bit next to the braking surface. Used 1” brush.
  10. Some say you do, some say you don’t. I’m not....lets see how it goes.
  11. Now the battery is totally [email protected] , only 48amps ! Should be 680 , so won’t even turn over. Dorset Auto Spares for the new one .....best price online and next day delivery 😃
